Wade Boggs was doing something he probably had done a thousand times before. He was taking off his cowboy boots. But, he was standing up using one foot to take the other boot off. That’s when he slipped and ended up falling into the arm of the couch, bruising his ribs.

Dave Beasant

A naturally instinctive soccer player, Beasant is used to using his feet. One time, he was getting ready to put some salad dressing on his salad when he dropped the jar. He put out his foot like any normal soccer player would and ended up severing his tendon in his big toe.

Alan Wright has a really strange one. He was driving around in his own Ferrari and he strained his knee. He couldn’t reach the accelerator. Now why…you know, why…isn’t he able to adjust the car so that he can drive it safely?

Alex Stepney

You won’t want to believe this one either. But, Alex was yelling at a game. It appears he was yelling so loud and passionately that he ended up breaking his jaw.

Bill Gramatica

This is an injury that took place on the field. But, it’s included because his injury comes after the play. He kicked a 43 yarder in the first quarter and jumped up to celebrate. He came down with a torn ACL.

Glenn Healy

This is just strained. But, these things happen. Glenn likes to play the bagpipes. But, they require maintenance. Glenn needed 10 stitches after cutting his hand changing the bag.

Lionel Simmons

Lionel went through high school basketball, college basketball, and was in the pros. He had been to thousands of practices and none of that injured him like the time he developed tendonitis from playing video games.

Leroy Lita

This one will make you laugh. Get ready for it. Leroy injured himself sleeping. When he woke up to stretch, he pulled a muscle in his back.

Marty Cordova

This should actually stand as a warning. Marty Cordova was tanning one day and burned his face. It was so bad, the doctor had to tell him to stay out of the sun for a few days.

Mat Latos

People are warned about this. But, they just don’t seem to heed it. Mat injured himself holding in a sneeze. He caused pain in his side that put him out for 15 weeks.

Sammy Sosa

This is one that can’t be helped. When you bend over to get something and all of a sudden you have to sneeze, that’s what put Sammy Sosa out for a few games. When they checked him out, he had a sprained ligament.

Adam Eaton

This is a real boner. It starts with Adam trying to open up a CD case. We all know how big of a hassle that is. Adam ended up stabbing himself in the gut with a knife. He’s fine. But, he’ll never forget that one.

Darius Vassell

Call this one the biggest boner of them all. Darius had a blood blister on his toe. So like any normal person, he tried some DIY surgery with a power drill. He actually made it worse and his toe nail needed removed. You can’t make this stuff up folks!
